Clinical trials are a fundamental part of this process. Volunteer participation in clinical trials is essential for the development and approval of new medications and medical treatments.
To discover better treatment methods and medications, pharmaceutical companies must conduct research and clinical trials. These trials help them to learn how a medication works and how safe and effective it is.
That is where Great Lakes Research Group (GLRG) comes in. As one of Michigan’s leading clinical research companies, our areas of expertise include Cardiology, Dermatology, Family Practice, Internal Medicine, and Obstetrics and Gynecology. and we have conducted an incredibly wide range of clinical studies over the years.
Clinical studies are a necessary and incredibly valuable part of the process, and the people who volunteer to participate in them may benefit not only themselves but also countless others in the future. If you or someone you love is battling addiction, a medical condition, or mental illness, or would like to contribute to the development of new medications/treatments, you may be able to join one of our studies at GLRG.
A clinical trial is a research study in human volunteers intended to answer particular health questions. Clinical trials at GLRG are conducted to develop new medications or treatments that can improve health. After a medication or treatment is found to be safe and effective, it may be approved by the FDA and then, it will be available for the population.
No treatment may reach clinical testing unless there is evidence that there might be an improvement over current therapies.
Medical treatment cannot improve without research and volunteers. Everyone would like a successful treatment available to them if they are diagnosed with an illness. By volunteering for clinical trials at GLRG you can help advance knowledge about future treatments that someday you and a loved one may benefit from.
As a volunteer research participant at GLRG you have the ability to take an active role in your own health, access possible investigational medications/treatments before they are widely available, and help future generations. Volunteers will also be compensated in return for their time and travel.
All clinical trials have guidelines about who can get into a specific study. The factors that allow someone to participate in a clinical trial are called “inclusion criteria” and those that disqualify someone from participating are called “exclusion criteria”.
These criteria are based on such factors as age, gender, the type and stage of a disease, previous treatment history, and other medical conditions. In order to join clinical trials at GLRG, a participant must meet the requirements for the study. Some research studies seek participants with illnesses or conditions to be studied in the clinical trial, while others need healthy participants. Inclusion and exclusion criteria are used to identify proper participants and keep them safe and ensuring that the research questions will be answered properly.
